I have been having trouble with some thing. Tom Gardner reads my Messenger texts, consistently and there is a sweet aspect to it. It seemed like for a while at least he was there for me in the evening, when Ezra would be getting in from school as sort of a check in time, but he does not respond at all. And it feels like he overreacts, so that things always get worse before they get better and I must say that it has regularly felt like I was lucky to get through things. 

This time I had a tooth pulled it was dead and yellow. It was a baby tooth. It had no adult tooth behind it. I am 42 years old. I have another tooth like it on the other side of my mouth. I had it pulled at a beautiful oral surgeon’s office in Barre, Dr. Lesney. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow afternoon. My dentist bill is paid. I have been taking care of myself, brushing, flossing, Tom’s of Maine mouthwash, smoothies with fruit, honey and tofu. I even feel like my hair may be growing faster going around missing a tooth. It is a molar, towards the back so it can not be readily seen. 

Yet, it feels like Tom is focusing on the negative. I mentioned that I have a sore throat at night. And it feels like he thinks I am being a dumb complainer. 

To be fair to myself I could add that he is a Latter Day Saint, so he knows the importance of providing, the role of the man as provider and yet even though I have provided for myself and Ezra for all 11 years of Ezra’s life, with out any help from Tom, Tom does not seem impressed by this at all.

Tuesday –

What is a Paleo anti-inflammatory diet?


Salt and coffee are not Paleo foods.

Inflammatory fighting:

Omega 3, nuts, kale and spinach, soy, peppers, tomatoes, beets, ginger and turmeric, berries

No wonder I have been naturally drawn to these foods.

I would add avocado to this. Although considered a one seeded berry, native to Mexico it is a fat. Tea with out caffeine, herbal tea, drank warm or iced.

April 13, 2017: Time for me to comment on here. I have made Golden Milk. I have been using coconut milk, coconut oil, honey and eating beets, kale, and peppers. Been using turmeric, not only in the Golden Milk, but also in scrambled tofu for breakfast.

Beets I cook, slice and drench in Italian dressing. It makes a cold salad. Kale I make in to salted chips. Just dry them out at 225 degrees in the oven until they fall apart on your tongue. Coconut milk is tasteless and can be poured in to cold cereal or you can heat it up and add honey to it and even a Tablespoon of coconut oil. Indian shrimp dishes are made with coconut milk and are delicious.
